Thanks, susan! I will be making variations for Thanksgiving with this, too.

1st riff -- about 1/3 cup of the slaw with plenty of dressing added to about 1 cup cooked brown rice -- first taste is delicious and I'm sure by dinner it'll be fabulous! I just wanted to savor these perfect flavors a little longer!
